Sprouted Hummus


  1. 2 cups sprouted chickpeas*
  2. 1 cup sesame seeds/6-8 tbsp tahini, creaminess as desired
  3. 1/2 lemon juice
  4. 2-3 garlic cloves**
  5. 1.5 tsp cumin powder
  6. 2 chopped green chilis***
  7. Salt to taste (optional)
  8. Olive oil, drizzle on top (optional)
  9. Water to blend, desired consistency


*Sprout the chickpeas for at least 2-3 days for better digestion.

**This is, kind of, a necessary ingredient or the hummus won’t taste as good as without it.

***Indian in me needed this, you absolutely can skip it if you want!

      All you’ve got to do after letting it soak overnight is keep it in a dark corner and let it do it’s thing. It will sprout in 2-3 days, depending on the temperature, just keep checking on it every 12 hours or so.
